Slovenia is often called 'Europe in Miniature', 'The Sunny Side of the Alps', 'The Green Piece of Europe' and, though they may sound like tourist-brochure blurbs, they're all true. From beaches, snow-capped mountains, hills awash in grapevines and wide plains blanketed in sunflowers, to Gothic churches, baroque palaces, historic castles and art nouveau civic buildings, Slovenia offers more diversity than countries many times its size. Among Slovenia's greatest assets, though, are the Slovenes themselves - welcoming, generous, multilingual, and broad-minded.
